Lessons I have learnt from my mother

Lifesaving lessons I have learnt from my mother – Godly Mothers are fountains of WISDOM
1. Listening and obeying is key

My mother is always using one statement which cuts across deeply, “One who is not taught by the mother, will be taught by the world”. This statement used to scare the hell out of me as it came as a resounding prophecy.

2. You need to wake up early.

Once again, my mother always says this in the scariest way yet so real.” Your problems will wake you up.” This gets me up every day because I don’t want problems to force me to wake up.

3. Hard work is the only way out

Wake up and get it done. My motto any day all day! Mum has always encouraged us not to look to people for solutions. Solutions are just within but with some digging to do.

4. Education is the Key.

Mum always says, inheritance can be in many forms, but the most valuable inheritance a parent can give their children is good education. I concur with her.

IN THIS SEASON

In this season, I long for a change, I long for a different pattern.

In this season, I want to dance to a different music, I want to hear a different tune.

In this season, I long for a new challenge, a different assignment altogether.

In this season, I want a different kind of people on my table, I want a people with a different mindset.

In this season, I want more flexibility, no more 9 to 5 routines.

In this season, I want a different energy, a different level of enthusiasm.

In this season, I want a new environment, I long to walk on different streets.

In this season, don’t get me wrong, I am not dissatisfied, I just need a new experience, something different, something extra.

Ever had such a season in your life? Would love to hear your story. Share with me by leaving a comment.

Grow up

000

Growth in life is inevitable and ought to happen naturally. Anything that does not grow, slowly dies. Be it a marriage, career, business, relationship etc.

But how much strides you make in your growth is your choice. It is sad when one grows in years and size but there is no progress to match.

Let’s get one point very clear, retardation or stagnation as other people would call it in any area of ones life is a curse. Serious curse!

With that said, below are traits of an impactful growth to watch out for:

1. Growth is uncomfortable, so very uncomfortable.

2. Growth demands a state of willingness.

3.Growth will stretch you and push you out of your comfort zone.

4. Growth demands that you activate your faith.

5.Growth demands a state of “emptiness”, that state of never arriving. Create that state of emptiness intentionally.

6. As you grow, you make mistakes, but there is impactful strides in mistakes. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

7. Growth happens best when you surround yourself with non judgmental people. People that give you the freedom to grow. They are not many of them, so be careful.

8. Lastly, growth/change is permanent for anyone that desires progress.

So please grow up, and in this context, this is not an insult but a wake up call and challenge.

The seed in every word

Words are very powerful more than you could wrap your mind around. As we seek to walk in a more deeper revelation of this, I wish to share with you briefly of what has been revealed to me in terms of the “Spoken Word”.

Every word that comes out of your mouth, becomes The Word, and it is quickly established in your life, whether positive or negative. How powerful is that.

If you take time to observe people’s lives, you will realize that, there is a direct relation between their lives and their words.

I become very uncomfortable if I hold a conversation with anyone and the conversation is vain, full of complains and faithless. I am always eager to terminate that conversation to avoid it rubbing off on me. See staying in faith is work and some conversations can water down your faith just by being in it or by just listening in. Be wise.

Just like a seeds bring forth fruits, so does words. Words full of faith deliver promises from God. Positive words upon your finances deliver prosperity. The list is endless.

Choose your words wisely and more so the words you choose to listen to and let into your spirit, because in time, the fruits shall manifest.

002Have you ever believed God for something so much, out of your human nature you feel like He, “the on-time God” has been held up somewhere by some traffic or jam as we call it in Kenya.

At times I forget that He does not operate in our human time frame, but I am also reminded that He is my very present help in time of any need. In fact He sticks closer than a brother!

So most of the time I am always reconciling His nature and my nature. The good book calls it, Renewal of Mind. When the 2 come together the miraculous happen. He happens to be extra and I happen to be ordinary, when we come together, we become, Extra-Ordinary. I am Extra-Ordinary

You could be delayed but you can NEVER be denied. With Him in you and by you, you become Extra-Ordinary!

Happy Thoughts

The scriptures says, “as a man thinks in his heart so is he”

Nothing just happens before first being just a simple thought. What do I mean?

You can never become anything that you have never thought of becoming. For example, you are a winner first in your thoughts, before you can become a winner to the world. You’re a failure first in your thoughts, before you manifested yourself as a failure to the world.

The beauty of this is that, no thought takes dominance of your mind without your approval. This means that for any thoughts whether good or bad to gain tenancy in your mind, you must first sign the go ahead approval of the same, consciously or otherwise. When these thoughts seek your approval for tenancy, you have the power to allow or reject! This happens to be the life defining moment in one’s life. To be or not to be. To be a winner or to be a failure. To be happy or to be moody. To be aggressive or to be passive. To be determined or to be lazy and so on. In other words, you are the C.E.O!!

Above all, there is one thought that I find myself choosing to give tenancy in my mind every single time I receive a request in my mind. That is; Happy Thoughts, just to choose to be HAPPY. I have discovered that this very thought affects my whole being without discrimination. It is like a direct injection to the other sub-thoughts.

In a world that is full of negativity, choosing to be HAPPY becomes a daily choice every hour. For you to succeed in remaining happy, you may need to preorder your happy thoughts. Trust me, it is required. At times, you may need to force your mind to accept your happy thoughts because most of the time, circumstances and conditions demands that your lose your sanity. The stress of the times we are living in, demands that you have to encourage yourself every minute to remain happy and full of joy.

But it amazes me that the Lord knew that this would require His intervention and so He already made a provision for it in His Word.” The joy of the Lord is my strength”. The source of my joy and happiness is from a constant God, who never changes, who does not suffer lack or want! With that said, I am assured that my joy and happiness is ever full in Him.

I have made this very practical in my life; to always speak these words into my mind until my mind knows nothing else but, “THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH”. I speak them anywhere and loudly, at home, place of work, while on the road, I mean anywhere and everywhere until my mind conforms and I remain a HAPPY AND JOYFULL WOMAN!

Be happy!000
